    Actually Science is religion neutral, which is something religionists don’t realise. You can use science to reinforce or refute a spiritual belief system, Science doesn’t care, but your USA religious fundamentalists do.

    Yeah, because there’s no religious nuts from any other country in the world. It’s not like Ken Ham is from Australia or anything like that. The ‘Reformed Political Party’ doesn’t exist in the Netherlands, Ian Paisley doesn’t live in Ireland, no it only happens in the US.

    I suspect that roaches are religion-neutral, too.

    By the way, I applaud your proclaiming your status, but whose husband are you?

    Most religious people are not extremist, fundamentalist, or science-fearing. They don’t make the news, though.

    Only Protestants fear science.

    Then why did it take 400 years for the Vatican to apologize for its treatment of Galileo?

    Science is about the physical world. Religion (at its best) is about all other realms. We should all agree to stop freaking out about this.

    Gads, I HOPE this isn’t how Bell actually understands quantum theory. Because that right there is a science fail. :¬/

    Right. Because it would totally make sense for an all powerful God to give power over his creation to his enemy in order to trick humans into not believing in God. Assuming you’re Christian, Rom. 1:20 suggests that the natural universe speaks the truth about God – so, since science is careful observation of the natural universe, that would suggest what science has to say about the universe has to be reconciled with your faith – not treated as a trick.
    .
    As for it being a great point, I think Bell was being a bit sarcastic; quantum theory doesn’t suggest observation is needed to create reality, it suggests reality in certain circumstances is affected by observation – specifically, that some quantum-level phenomena are affected by the act of observing them. Also an over-simplification, but closer to reality :)

    Bishop Berkeley was a quantum physicist?

    To speak of proofs is to speak of truth, logic, and reason. If any of those validated the idea of God (or gods or anything supernatural) there wouldn’t be any need for faith, which is the rejection of evidence and logic. You can’t have both, no matter how hard you try to fool yourself.

    USA fundamentalists? Surely you don’t believe USA has the monotony on religious fundamentalists? My word that is even worse than people believing science and religion can’t mix.

    TRUE science doesn’t care. It gathers evidence to find truth. FALSE science on the other hand starts with a theory, and a presupposition that God does not exist, and gathers only evidence to support the theory. Anything contrary to the presupposition is excluded from the results. Thus FALSE (incomplete) results = FALSE science.
